Most people think that ice melt is merely an umbrella term for any product used for melting snow when in fact it refers to a liquid calcium spread used to de-ice solids. The reason for using an ice melt over rock salt is that it is the most effective method for lowering freezing temperatures of ice as low as -25 degrees Fahrenheit. It is fast acting and makes plowing large commercial areas faster, saving money and time.
